Vad du kommer att göra

We will meet at a point very close to the famous Old Town entrance of Famagusta so that you can find the starting point easily. Once we meet, rather than using the common route, I will take you to the opposite direction of the Old Town where many secrets of Famagusta lie.

This area was once the city centre especially during the British Colonial period and has lots of history and things to discover. The area would have been the centre of many attractions as it used to be if the separation of the island never took place. Wires which can easily be seen and separate the island is situated here. While exploring how things used to look before the establishment of the Republic of Cyprus in 1960, you will also have the chance to walk along what we call 'Tel Boyu' (by the wire) while your host will be providing you information about the Cyprus problem - the one from the people's experiences rather than what's written in the books!

Hi! I am a Sociologist with post graduate degree in Social and Political Thought. I completed my studies abroad and discovered that I actually love travelling. I lived in Turkey, Britain, Denmark and traveled to many places. I was very fortunate to work for the British Consulate where I gained first-hand experience of the Cyprus-Britain relationship. Most recently, I was based in London working for a well-known University in the city with a senior title. I am surely interested in the history of Cyprus including the recent history which largely covers the British era.

She is an excellent guide. Annabelle readily agreed to pick us up at the Derinya cross-point and showed us Varosha/Maras. It was quite interesting to see and hear about the British rule over Cyprus. She was happy to drop us back at the border cross-point. I have already recommended Annabelle to diplomatic personnel in Nicosia who have not yet visited Famagusta 😊

Annabelle was a brilliant tour guide. We asked for an extended tour starting from the Deryneia checkpoint and asked to be dropped off at the beach next to Varosha, which she was happy to accommodate. She showed us Varosha and explained some very interesting history behind it. She showed us the beach and left us to explore for a few hours. We met up later for the rest of the tour around the British area and it was really interesting seeing and hearing about all of the history. Annabelle was happy to answer any questions, sharing personal experiences too. A really attentive and engaging host, who then dropped us back at the border crossing where we could walk back to our car parked on the south side. This made the whole experience really easy for us. Would whole heartedly recommend over other well publicised Famagusta tours for an authentic experience!! Thanks Annabelle :)

What a precious and interesting experience to follow the tracks of the English colonial period of Famagusta with Annabelle! We have been able to learn many details about the colonial period and also about the recent history of the Turkish occupation. Annabelle is a very competent and caring guide and structures the route so that participants can be actively involved and want to learn even more. During the tour you can breathe the history. We can warmly recommend this experience. Thanks Annabelle!

Passionate, dedicated, pleasant, sweet and a must try. Annabelle knows a lot about the subjects and gladly shares personal stories if you ask. Ask her about her Sami ancestors :)

Fantastic experience with information and insights to a phase of the city‘s history that is physically still present but slowly disappearing. Visible history!
